Andrews’ energy crisis

Tuesday, 14 March 2017

Daniel Andrews created this energy crisis and now he’s hoping some media stunts will help dig him out of the mess.

Daniel Andrews tripled the tax on coal, introduced a ridiculously high state-based Renewable Energy Target and forced the closure of Hazelwood which represents 22% of Victoria’s electricity generation capacity.   

Because of his ideological obsessions, the average Victorian household is already paying an extra $300 per year for energy with more increases to come.

If Daniel Andrews is serious about trying to make electricity more affordable, he should immediately match the Liberal Nationals commitment to abolish the Victorian Renewable Energy Target.

Like with everything else he does, Daniel Andrews’ energy policies aren’t about improving life for all Victorians, they are about helping a select few of his friends.
